Sports Mole previews the bottom-of-the-table clash between Queens Park Rangers and Southampton at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers host Southampton on Saturday afternoon as they look to leapfrog their opponents and move off the bottom of the Premier League table.

Manager Mark Hughes has admitted that his job could be under threat if his team falls to another defeat at the weekend as they continue to look for their first win of the season.

That could prompt the former Wales boss to introduce Bobby Zamora to the starting lineup to partner Djibril Cisse in attack.

Southampton earned a morale-boosting draw at home to Swansea City last weekend for their first point in four Premier League games.

That could be enough for manager Nigel Adkins to keep faith in his starting XI from that match, although Jay Rodriguez could be pushing Rickie Lambert to lead the Saints attack.
